CloudRoute Helps SMBs Negotiate the Cloud
January 27, 2016
The cloud offers great promise for businesses to save big on capital expenses and ongoing maintenance and management, while providing them with the latest and greatest feature functionality. But embracing the cloud entails a whole new mindset and posture, and it can be a challenge for small and medium businesses to navigate this new world and all the suppliers that exist within it. CloudRoute was established to simplify that process, David Byrd (News - Alert), the company’s CMO and executive vice president of sales, explained in an interview today at ITEXPO.
There are various cloud applications from different vendors out there, but selecting the applications that will best meet the needs of a small business can be a problem, Byrd said. That’s where CloudRoute comes in. CloudRoute will act as a company’s trust supplier, vetting various applications and suppliers, providing the professional services to ensure a successful implementation, and allowing that company to focus on running its business rather than reviewing and procuring cloud solutions. Through its professional services, Byrd explained, CloudRoute will make sure businesses have the interoperability with existing enterprise systems, and processes in place to support the apps they need.
Initially, CloudRoute is providing a broad collection of applications from Microsoft (News - Alert), including Azure, Exchange Online, Intune, Office365, and more. Starting in February, CloudRoute will bring its own virtual data center and virtual desktop solutions into the mix.
CloudRoute is also currently focused on building its channel by negotiating relationships with independent and master agents, which will be the primary ways in which it brings solutions to market. The company’s partners can do billing under their own brands.
The company was established by Andre Temnorod, who is the CEO, and who was the founder of Broadvox (News - Alert).
